‘Escape Room’ – Film Review!

by Janet White on Jan 4th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

Puzzles are amazing. They push you to think and not just any ole thinking. You have to see through, around, up and down, probably why I love being a critic. Anyway, locks slide and toggles click as the screen fades in from black. Escape Room opens with a chessboard followed by a pan around an overloaded study, foretelling much. The sounds did not match the image that appeared. I wanted to like Escape RoomRead the rest of this entry »

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

dave-bautista-shared-photo-russia-1224247015It looks like ‘Escape Plan 2‘ is officially a go and Sylvester Stallone will be back on screen as Ray Breslin, the man who wrote the book on structural security. In the first film from 2013, he found himself set up and incarcerated in the world’s most secret and secure prison, he has to use his skills to escape with help from the inside. The sequel will not see Stallone alone though, Dave Bautista is on deck to join Sly this time around.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Big-Trouble-in-Little-China-01

It’s finally happening! I’ve said that a few times this week, first the crossover plan for ‘He-Man‘ and ‘Thundercats‘ comic expansion made my day. This time it’s more comic book news, but like the coolest comic book news I could bring you! ‘Big Trouble In Little China‘ and ‘Escape From New York‘ comics will have a crossover edition!!! That’s right! Kurt Russell x 2! Doublemint Kurt Russell! How much Kurt Russell can you take before it’s too much Kurt Russell? I don’t know, but I’m willing to find out! Now, let’s take a minute to calm down, I expended more energy in the first sentences than I have all week! While I’m wheezing my heart rate back to normal, let’s get the rest of the story.

Film Review: ‘No Escape’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 26th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

Screen Shot 2015-08-26 at 11.54.58 AM

No Escape opens in black with opening credits and the sound of insects chirping.  Suddenly we focus on two glasses of clear beverage.  The camera follows the waiter carrying the glasses through the hotel/mansion until they arrive at the security/food taster.  Upon receiving his approval the waiter continues to the Prime Minister of Thailand and his visitor.  You wonder if something is in the glasses and if the Prime Minister will meet his end.  They both drink and finish their meeting.  As the visitor is escorted out by security, suddenly alarms sound.  The security officer takes off for the Prime Minister.  He is found bloody and dead.  Rebels walk up to the security officer and he draws his blade.  To defend himself?  No, he slices his own throat.  Oh, right, this is a Weinstein film.  Cut to titles that transition into clouds and an airplane window.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Escape From New York’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 21st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE FILM

John Carpenter’sEscape From New York‘ came out in 1981. I was born in 1981. This is not a coincidence. Ever since my dad showed me ‘Escape From New York‘, I wanted to don an eye patch, stick it to authority, and save the human race, just like Plissken does, but I knew I’d never be as cool as Plissken ever was.

‘Escape From New York’ Remake Coming From Fox!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 14th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

escapefromnewyork

It’s official the bidding war for ‘Escape From New York‘ was heated, but Fox has won the day and their spoils are rights to remake 1981’s sci-fi actioner that saw a lot of big names saddle up for the ride. Of course, Kurt Russell was perfect as Snake Plissken, Lee Van Clyfe, Ernest Borgnine, Donald Pleasance, Isaac Hayes and Harry Dean Stanton are just among a few of the key players.

Hi, Bryan Here…

escape

I’m very skeptical about this project. The original ‘Escape from New York‘ that starred Kurt Russell and was directed by John Carpenter is pretty much flawless. ‘Escape From LA‘ on the other hand wasn’t as good, even though it had Bruce Campbell. That being said, Hollywood, specifically producer Joel Silver has been wanting to remake the film for the better part of a decade now. But it seems as of recently, that things are picking up speed.

Film Review: ‘Escape Plan’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

escape-plan-trailer-dl

I counted six one liners in the Schwarzenegger/Stallone film ‘Escape Plan‘. I was hoping for more, and when it came to Schwarzenegger’s big moment to deliver the goods, they must’ve hired a three year old, because his one-liner was pretty lame, as is much of this action thriller that finally has the two biggest action stars of the 80s together at last for an entire movie. Now before we get into the good and bad of this film, let us first discuss the director, whose name is Mikael Hafstrom, who directed the John Cusack vehicle ‘1408‘. But more interestingly, Hafstrom wrote a movie called ‘Kopps‘, which you can see a brief snippet below (it’s required viewing to proceed with the review)….

It’s finally happened. Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are finally in a film together where the two of them are the main stars. ‘Escape Plan‘ is set to release in October of this year and actually screened at Comic Con a month ago. It received mixed reviews, but everyone seemed to enjoy it overall, especially Schwarzenegger’s performance.

Edward Zwick Interview on ‘Trial by Fire’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2019

I had the distinct pleasure to talk with filmmaker Edward Zwick about his new motion picture ‘Trial by Fire‘, amongst other aspects of his career. ‘Trial by Fire‘ is Zwick’s newest film about the true crime story about the Texas State Prisoner Execution of Cameron Todd Willingham some years ago. The film stars Jack O’Connell and Laura Dern and follows the story of a father who escaped a home fire alive, but his two young kids were burned alive inside.
